Petit Prefere de nos Montagnes is reminiscent of France’s famed Reblochon with a pungent, milky taste that’s uniquely its own. A sticky orange rind contains a rich paste with notes of hazelnut and white wine. Pair it with Murray's Sopressata Salami and a handful of Marcona Almonds for a savory snack.

“Petit Prefere de nos Montagnes is a great substitute for Reblochon. If you’re a fan of French washed rind cheeses, make sure this one is on your list. Try mixing in with potato, bacon, and onion gratin to make a traditional Tartiflette.”

  • Petit Prefere de nos Montagnes is the perfect introduction to washed rind cheeses as it is not as robust as others in the category.
  • The lightly washed rind gets its orange color, in part, from the annatto that’s added to the rind.
  • It’s unctuous and milky, similar in texture to a brie, with a deep flavor reminiscent of white wine and hazelnut.
  • Petit Prefere de nos Montagnes hails from the Jura region of France and is reminiscent of the French Reblochon.
  • Reblochon is a name-protected cheese, one unavailable for purchase in the United States because of its age and use of raw milk.
  • Some legal, pasteurized versions are sold in the U.S. with slightly different spelling, akin to Parmesan v. Parmigiano.
When you receive your cheese, unpack the order and refrigerate the items. We recommend using the cheese paper we send most of our products in to store the cheese. The cheese paper helps cover the items and stop them from drying out, while also allowing the cheese to breathe. Since cheese is mold, it's a living thing! If you cut off air circulation to the cheese, you can actually cause it to suffocate and spoil at a faster rate.
